Total Eclipse of the Sun
Lens: smc 18-55mm da Camera: K-3 Photo Location: boise idaho ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: sqlngtr, 09-02-2014, 12:51 PM

This was the last day of a 5 day balloon festival in Boise, Idaho. Around 50 balloons in all launched at once right after sunrise. I was fortunate to be positioned just right for the first balloon to block out the sun for this shot.

Thank you. I think next year I'll get on the other side of the park though. Shooting into the sun was a problem and an opportunity....
